54 veterinary students from around the world received scholarships from Merck Animal Health, in partnership with the American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF)
The American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF) and the Veterinary Pharmacology Research Foundation (VPRF) have partnered to fund research grants with a focus on veterinary pharmacology. This funding supports research projects designed to improve prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases in animals.
The American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF) announced that it has provided a $25,000 grant to support Montana reservations in need of hay due to the impact of recent winter storms.
The AVMF grant will go toward replenishing hay supplies to help thousands of cattle and horses struggling to survive in the Fort Belknap, Northern Cheyenne and Blackfeet tribal reservations. These tribes have reported more than 150 livestock deaths due to the extreme cold and record amounts of snowfall. This winter's hay shortages were compounded by Montana's drought last summer and the wildfires that damaged more than one million acres in the state during the fall of 2017. These three successive severe weather events led to this emergency for thousands of animals in Montana.
